Pennywell skatepark is an all concrete skatepark that can be found in King George V palying fields and is solely a transitions based park.
It features a mini ramp on one side, the side of which opens up into a large flat area and the top platform of which has a quarter pipe leading into it. Running off the other top platform is a flat bank and this leads up to a jump box and the run finishes with a quarter pipe at the other end.
Pennywell skatepark is a simple back and forth park, the layout is not the most original however the surfaces are smooth and fast which makes up for it.
